The troubled life of French songbird Edith Piaf, who died in 1963 at forty-eight, had enough drama to fill a dozen movies. Her upbringing in a brothel, followed by bruising encounters with sex, booze and drugs, created a voice that touched the world with hits such as "La Vie en Rose," "Milord" and "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien."
One of France's most beloved singers and an international icon, lived a life filled with drama, rumour and conjecture. Through it all, her music reflected her life.
Her voice is the soul of Paris.
